I am so excited to share with you guys my most recent beauty find! HELLLOOO Smile Brilliant! I’ve always been a sucker for teeth whitening stuff (especially since I drink 1,200 cups of coffee a day and I am in fact a wine connoisseur 😉 ), whether it’s strips, mouth wash, pre-brush mouth rinse, toothpaste and even whitening tooth brushes (yes, there is such a things whitening toothbrushes these days!), gimme all the whitening thingsssss.
The only downside to teeth whitening for me is the sensitivity side effect. My teeth tend to get a little extra sensitive during my teeth whitening ‘activities’, but more than anything it’s my gums, they get SO tender! So I was even more interested in Smile Brilliant when I found out that they have an extra product to use following your teeth whitening system to help with the sensitivity side effects… and you guys, it really works!
I also particularly like the convenience of Smile Brilliant. First they sent me the molding paste to make some teeth impressions, which was so much easier than I had expected, and it included detailed instructions with pictures. I sent the molds back in the pre-paid shipping envelope they sent along with the kit, and with in a week I had my whitening trays. Shortly after I received my trays we left on a two week summer family vacation so I decided to take them along with me and since we traveled in our motorhome it worked out perfectly! Because my teeth and gums tend to be pretty sensitive, I made sure I used the de-sensitzing gel after each whitening session and I also spaced my whitening sessions out to every couple of days. I typically whiten my teeth at night since I ‘m not suppose to eat or drink anything for about 30 min after I’m done (I tried whitening in the middle of the day one time and I forgot to wait and drank a bunch of water).
I am so excited about this amazing product the ease of the entire process. I’m also loving the results, a whiter smile always makes me feel better! So along with my favorite lip gloss and perfume, these whitening trays will always be in my travel bag. I would love to hear your feedback and any tips and tricks you use for a whiter and brighter smile, thanks for stopping by!

I think some how some how, subconsciously, we all struggle with the pursuit of perfection. There are times I really feel like I don't give a crap and I tend to let my control of having a "perfect" world go, but then some how I end up right back in that space of 'am I a good enough mom, wife, and friend... why the hell can I not cook every night of ...

Another first day of school in the books! I'm relieved and dying all at the same time. Last week I had all of the kids home and can I just tell you it felt like the LONGEST week of my entire life. I know that probably sounds bad but I can't be the only mom in the world who loves those times but also really dislikes them right?! This week has been a ... Continue Reading

I have my oldest son starting high school and to say the least, it's been a bit of an emotional roller coaster.
